The No. 11 Concordia Eagles continued their homestand with (RV) Biola on Saturday afternoon, February 23 at Eagles Field.

Chris Garrison started for Concordia in game one and earned his first victory as an Eagle in the 13-2 drubbing.  He went eight innings, allowed seven hits, two runs, with six K's to go to 1-2 on the year.  Danny Romero pitched a perfect ninth with one K.  Josh Staumont got roughed up for Biola and fell to 3-1.  Concordia collected 13 hits and left seven on base.  Ryan DiMascio had a double along with Chase Koissian, who also had an RBI.  Ty Holm had two hits, a triple, and three RBI.  Bryan Garza had two hits for an RBI and Spencer Ofelt had three knocks and three batted in.

Dillon Bryant hit a one-out single in the first and Garza followed with a single.  Ofelt brought them both home with a base knock and DiMascio followed with a double.  Ofelt scored on a groundout and DiMascio scored with two out on Koissian's double to left field.  Kuber singled to score him to make it 5-0 Concordia.

Biola got one back in the third and fourth, but Chance Kopacz led off the fourth with a single.  Biola got sloppy and Concordia scored on a passed ball.  Holm tripled to right center to score two.  Garza and Ofelt both singled to plate five in the inning and make it 10-2 Eagles.  Holm singled home Koissian, who walked in the fifth, and Concordia took advantage of a Biola error to score another in the sixth.  Another Biola error and a Concordia hit led to another run in the eighth to make it 13-2 Concordia.  Concordia made zero errors in the field.

The Eagles made it a three-game sweep with a 4-0 win in game two.  Adam Quintana improved to 4-0 as he allowed seven hits over seven innings, with four K's in the shutout effort.  Ty Holm had two hits and a double, and Chance Kopacz knocked two singles. 

Concordia got the scoring started in the second inning when Kopacz singled with one out and moved to second on a groundout.  He stole third and scored on Chris Kuber's RBI single through the right side.  Concordia added another in the third as Holm doubled to lead off.  Holm was thrown out at third on Bryant's fielder's choice, and Bryant eventually came in to score on a wild pitch after Garza singled.  Kopacz doubled to lead off the fourth, stole third, and scored on a Biola error.  Holm singled to lead off the fifth and Bryant followed with a single.  Holm scored on Garza's sac fly.

Biola threatened in the first, second, and fifth, but Quintana worked out of all jams.  Concordia improved to 12-7 and 8-4 in the GSAC, while Biola dropped to 12-8 and 5-7 in the conference.
